“গাড়ির বাজারে যুক্ত হচ্ছে দেশের অন্যতম শিল্প গ্রুপ পিএইচপি। এবার তারা প্রোটন গাড়ির সংযোজন কারখানা স্থাপন করবে।

পিএইচপি জানিয়েছে, চট্টগ্রামের আনোয়ারা উপজেলায় ৩০ একর জায়গায় এখন প্রোটন গাড়ি সংযোজন কারখানার প্রাথমিক নির্মাণকাজ কাজ চলছে। বছরে কারখানাটিতে ১ হাজার ২০০ মোটরগাড়ি সংযোজনের লক্ষ্যমাত্রা ঠিক করা হয়েছে।”

A brief overview of the nature of Physical Digital Retail  #21stCenturyRenaissance

Retail has become a blur – with Physical Stores and Online Retail (together with Mobile) – each approaching the other to create something new – Physical Digital Retail.

Target, Macy‘s and Walmart, the Physical Stores, are focusing on

  • Online Retail and
  • In-store Mobile Tracking & Commerce

while Amazon and Google, the online giants, are investing in

  • “Same-day delivery Services” (the “instant gratification” factor – that only Physical Stores could offer in the past).

 

“In-store” Intelligent interfaces that interact with customers are beginning to make their appearances in Physical Stores.

Big Data and Analytical Tools will get popular among Physical Retailers for tasks such as

  • Sales pattern investigation
  • Supply chain management (SCM)
  • Product placement in Stores (utilizing methods such as Market basket Analysis).

 

Physical Digital Retail” is big!

The Beginnings Of A Renaissance In The 21st Century

The Beginnings Of A Renaissance In The 21st Century  #21stCenturyRenaissance

 

A Renaissance in Scientific and Engineering Innovation has quietly started in 2014 – mostly inside the walls of Large Corporate Houses.

People will begin to notice its impact within a year or so – when novel innovations from Corporations really start affecting our day to day lives and people begin to write and talk about those innovations widely.

My ideas and my writings are inspiration to this 21st Century Renaissance. My capacity to challenge the best Companies on the planet is the driving force.

 

Software & IT Corporations

Software & IT Corporations – Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon – all have renewed their focus on innovation.

We have already seen several new products.

 

Google bought lots of Companies (from “Robotics” & “Smart Home” Companies to “Artificial Intelligence” & “AeroSpace” Corporations) – belonging to areas which people thought Google would never venture into.

Microsoft brought Microsoft band, Microsoft HoloLens, Windows 10 and brought about changes to its corporate structure and company culture.

Facebook bought Oculus Rift and increased budget allocation for research and innovation (even if by compromising short term revenues – according to Zuckerberg).

We have already seen novel innovative products from Amazon and HP (including a Physical Digital Computer – “HP Sprout” [4] ).

And Apple, the consumer Electronics Company, has started working on a new Digital Car ( #DigitalCar ) – that is Self Driving [5] and Electric [6] and a new Search Engine [7].

 

Auto Companies

Auto Companies have renewed their efforts on innovation and research.

And It’s not just American Auto Corporations. German and Japanese Auto Corporations are equally excited by innovation possibilities!

We witnessed their efforts and had a glimpse of our future cars in CES 2015.

German automaker Mercedes-Benz showcased their “Concept Car” [3] – which is pretty far from “Cars” as we know them today!

Japanese automaker Toyota unveiled almost 6000 patents concerning “Fuel Cell Technology” to the world – furthering opportunities for research and innovation for people all over the world in CES 2015 [2].

 

Physical Digital Computing

And in the mean time – several new areas of innovation are taking shape – (from Digital Manufacturing and “Wearables” to Smart Home and Physical Digital Retail) – all of which fall under the broad area “Physical Digital Computing”.

 

Innovations will accelerate by several magnitudes as soon as I start working on Engineering & Scientific Innovations : At My Ventures [1].

 

Welcome to the 21st Century Renaissance!

Welcome to a new World – a world far better than the world we used to live in!

Welcome to World Version 2!

Digital Car

  • Google could consider investing in Tesla Motors. Tesla’s Electric Cars combined with Google’s Self driving Technology, Android would make nice “Digital Electric Cars”!

Artificial Intelligence: Platforms & Services

  • Google could consider buying Viv Labs – if Viv’s technology can add something of value to Google Now and possibly the Search Engine.

Smart Home

  • The Nest Team seems isolated from the rest of the Google Team. Why not add some Product Design Expertise to Google?

Robotics

  • The 8 Robotics Companies Google bought – are laying idle. Those Robots (and parts of Robots) deserve a bit of attention, don’t they?!

Government, Policy & Law: Modernization of FDA (Food and Drug Administration) Drug and Device Approval Process

I shall modernize the “Process” that FDA follows to approve Drugs and devices:

  • Reformulating the testing phases the “drugs” and “devices” have to go through,
  • the phases themselves

– with the goals of shortening time and reducing the amount of money spent in the approval process.

Government “Process”es haven’t incorporated newer Technologies for more accurate testing & efficiency gains.

But before those changes take place, we have to make sure – drugs and devices are not approved hastily (untested “side-effects” might do more harms than goods to patients).

Some of European BioPharma Companies are already excited – planning to move research facilities to US – if those changes take place.

“Intel CEO Brian Krzanich offered a glimpse into the company’s vision of the near future with a number of cutting-edge demonstrations including gesture controls, facial recognition security prompts, drones that know how to move around obstacles and a jacket that can help the visually impaired or blind sense what’s around them.

At the heart of many of the demonstrations was Intel’s RealSense 3D, the company’s depth-sensing camera technology.

Intel also made another push for wearables with Curie, a button-sized chip

2015 is truly a unique year,” Krzanich said. “It‘s the beginning of the next consumer technology wave.”
